The Children’s Voice service organization of the Child Rescue Center held an outreach activity at the Paul School for the Blind on July 5.
The children came together and decided to give food to the hungry as it is one of the fruits of a Christian. They bought food items and took it to the school. On the arrival of the children at the Paul School for the Blind, the students were very happy to see them.
The students were told to assemble at the hall. Choruses were led by Isatu Kallon of the Children's Voice. Prayers were led by Edwina Davies. The presentation was by Anita Mansaray, who is the president of the Children’s Voice.
Vote of thanks was giving by the proprietor Mr. Conteh, who appreciated the gifts very much, as it came at the right time. The matron of the above Institution also thanked and blessed the children.

Vulnerable people on the street of Bo city received a Christmas gift in the form of uncooked food items (rice, salt, Maggi seasoning and onion.) This distribution was done by some staff and children in both the Child Support and Family Care Programs. The children and staff gave packages of food items to more than 50 vulnerable people on the streets and wished them a Merry Christmas.
The outreach committee did some renovations on two homes of children enrolled in our programs. First, the committee did repairs to the bedroom of one of our Family Care Program children. He has been sleeping in a mud-walled room without a proper ceiling or door. The outreach committee decided to finish his bedroom, and also improve some part of the caregiver’s room.
Roofing and painting were also done on another vulnerable family's house. This house has been leaking throughout this rainy season until the intervention of the CRC outreach program. Now they are safe from the troubles of the rain.
See below before and after photos of some of the renovations.
